Over the years we have had the pleasure of building tools ranging from the RDI 360 app, an enterprise software solution owned and operated by the Reagor-Dykes Auto Group to the open-source, big-data, Visualization Tool built for the USDA Research Laboratory in Lubbock, Texas. A popular saying at CD Programming is, “We stand on the shoulders of giants.” Meaning that it's an amazing time to be a software engineer! Because never before was it possible that a small team of dedicated people could build globally scalable software tools from their non-technical backyard located on the high plains of Texas—A place not usually seen for its technology scene. The rapid pace and infusion of powerful software tools is greatly due to the fact that companies like Google and Microsoft have dedicated resource teams tasked solely in participating in open-source technology. The Lubbock technology scene is priming to explode, and we plan to help spearhead that reality by opening our doors to anyone who need software counseling, free of charge. If we can't help you build it, we'll steer you in the right direction.
